About Lemon Diesel
Bred by Green Lantern Seeds, Lemon Diesel is an award-winning powerhouse that made it to the top ten at the 2010 Emerald Cup and took home a new band of consumers with it. This child of legends was born from two extremely popular parents, California Sour and Lost Coast OG, and offers users a familiar, yet unique experience in the vein of its genetics with flavors that pop and effects that leave you feeling like you’re floating on a citrus cloud.
This surprisingly skunky bud offers up moderate levels of THC averaging around 16% and an addictive flavor palate that ranges from peppery lemon to rich, sweet fruit. Her aromas are skunky and sweet with undertones of pepper, lemon, and tart diesel. Lemon Diesel buds are dense and neon green with a thick carpet of bright white trichomes. The dark purple and gray leaves work to highlight the bright greens on the buds as well as the sparse orange hairs that cover them.
Lemon Diesel gives off a heavy body high straight from the first puff. It begins with a cerebral rush that sends tingles throughout your body, and your skin will feel like a million goosebumps are rolling over you as your limbs completely relax. Your hands will feel suddenly light and your face won’t be able to help but smile. As your muscles release, your focus will do just the opposite. The energy kicks in quickly and you’ll feel highly motivated, but don’t beat yourself up if you aren’t super productive. This is more of an all over energy that leaves you feeling happy and thoughtful, but might not actually get you too far from the couch. Ultimately, Lemon Diesel is a great strain to get you moving for a short time, but expect a fairly steep come down.
Medically speaking, this strain is useful in a myriad of situations. Most prominently, this is a perfect strain for mental health issues such as depression, chronic stress, bipolar, and fatigue caused by restless sleep. Mild cases of nausea and migraines can be treated with slightly higher doses as well. As this can be a stimulating bud, Lemon Diesel is helpful in cases of lack of appetite, erectile dysfunction, or low libido. Depending on your tolerance, this strain can get overwhelming in excess, so those that suffer from extreme PTSD or anxiety should proceed with caution.
Lemon Diesel is an intermediate level plant and fairs well inside or outside as long as temperatures are steady without dramatic swings. Flowering times vary from 9 to 10 weeks with above average yields when using the Sea of Green technique. This is a pungent strain, so if discretion is necessary, make an investment in smell proofing.
If you’re a fan of Diesel strains you’ll love this iteration. It’s highly effective, gives off great aromas when burned, and you’ll find yourself alert and ready to take on your afternoon. Even though this energetic phase is short-lived, the combination of relaxation and alertness will certainly make Lemon Diesel a favorite of those who like to smoke while remaining functional.
